Laura Shepard

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in North Carolina with 7 years of experience working as a Psychotherapist I've worked with a diverse demographic of clients, to include working with families, specializing in grade school, teenagers, and young adults. I've also worked with clients with a myriad of diagnoses, such as anxiety, depression, ADD, ODD, relationships and adjustment issues. I possess years of experience with military service members and their families, here in the U.S. and abroad.
My approach to counseling is, meet the client's where they are. I'm welcoming, compassionate, and non-judgmental. I look at the whole picture to include a client's environment and support systems to better assess the client’s treatment goals. I utilize various Evidence Based Practices and interventions, to include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address depression and anxiety, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Problem Solving Therapy to address coping skills and develop problem solving strategies. Your treatment plan will be specifically designed with you for successful goal achievement. Making a decision for therapy is one that requires strength and courage. You did it! Let me help you get to your desire place of peace and joy!

Laura is a warm, kind and beautiful person. She met me at my energy level and listened to my concerns. Although short, I appreciate the time I’ve spent with her and would recommend her expertise to everyone and anyone!
